Despite celebrities like Demi Moore and Mariah Carey marrying men who are over a decade their junior, the public still struggles to come to grips with these romances.
Age-gap romances, though, do actually leave more room for gender equality, which tends to make couples happier.
If those words made you cringe, I’m sorry, but I’m just trying to be as direct as possible. Any way you want to look at it, complications such as down syndrome and miscarriages in pregnancy rise with age.
So it makes perfect sense that men are driven to younger women who have the lowest risk factors. Since they were teenagers, many women have idolized older men.
Similar to their younger male counterparts, younger women have reflected this interest in older men.
Women between 20 and 29 years old desire men who are up to 10 years their senior and no younger than up to three years.
They think it’s creepy and even put them the same category as pedophiles.
But many people in society still look down upon older men dating younger girls.
However, the rise of the "older woman-younger man" relationship has loosened this relationship convention and instead celebrates the age-gap romance.
Those Hollywood actors who have options almost always choose young women.
And unfortunately, if they’re leaving their wife, it’s almost always for a younger woman.
Instead, they settle for less or don’t even try at all.
I think that’s awful because I know many normal, great guys who just happen to like younger women. I want to show you that there’s nothing wrong with age disparity in a relationship and it may even work out better for many couples.
